Pablano Relleno

I plan on making some pablano rellenos based on a recipe posted on the board a few times (Steven Raichlen's recipe) and have a couple quick questions.

Do you leave the skin on? Pablano skin is quite tough.

I plan on doing a couple racks of baby backs and want to serve these as an app. I am going to be cooking the ribs at about 275 dome. Will the peppers be successful if I cook them indirect at 275 with the ribs? How long do you think they might take 45 - 60 mins at that temp?

Thanks for your help!

    Great cook idea. I think I will cook a couple too.

    Just stuff the peppers and cook them well, you will be fine. If you use aluminum foil open at the top also use some parchment paper between the foil and pepper. Any cheese or ingredient that is soft will 'mold' into the crinkles in the foil and all that goodness will be lost.

    These are cheese/chicken filled Pablano's.

    With parchment

    Without parchment, I lost a lot of the good melted cheese trying to pull it out of the aluminum foil.

    When cooking if the skin holds form and looks that bright green it will still be a little hard. When the texture and color changes to a more dull green the skin will be softer. You need to cook the pepper to your liking and until the ingredients are cooked.


    Good cooking...

    If you were doing traditional relleno remove the skin, otherwise don't. The skin help retain the integrity of the pepper. Don't worry about the skin it will soften and peel during the cook.

    The skin will become very tender during the cook, be sure to oil the outside before adding the filling. I'd plan on about an hour for the cook with the set up you want to use.

    Happy Trails
